Basta: "I would not organize a fight between Emelianenko and Dzhigan"

Rapper Vasily Vakulenko, better known as Basta, said he would not organize a fight between an MMA heavyweight Alexander Emelianenko and rapper Djigan as part of his Gazfight promotion.

“No, of course I wouldn't. In show business there is a place for everything, but in music it is also interesting for me to do something amazing, big, worthy and serious.

I am sure that a lot of wonderful people will want to have fun and make such a fight. I'm not interested in this. There are big and serious athletes who want to show their level and reach new heights.

I myself had suggestions of such a plan: to jump out somewhere, put on a show with a decent bag that would even fall. When I listen to this, I get the feeling that people have a deformed picture of the world.

Yes, now such shows are gaining momentum, but I am interested in doing something real, where I will be useful. For me, boxing is an unimaginable height.

I would like children to watch fights and enjoy boxing, they would like to do it. Freak fights have the right to exist, but I would not do them, ”Basta said.

Matchmaker of Basta's promotion: "We are planning to make a fight to Sergey Kovalev"

Basta organizes the first Gazfight boxing tournament. May 21 Kudryashov and Romanov will fight
